Four original comic book series will be on display and available for purchase at SDCC including:

  • Zombie Zero, a black-and-white series about Alexander Livingston, the last “surviving” zombie. Alexander enters into a post-apocalyptic California and follows his quest to reclaim a past that died before him.

  • Planetary Expansion is a full-color ensemble series about the starship Aegis and its 1,000 passengers. The book follows the crew’s quest to an inhabitable planet and reconciles their human nature with the unknown.

  • Space Dragon is a full-color graphic novel about a gigantic space-creature who jumps from planet to planet, absorbing oceans, in order to quench his thirst. This abstract piece explores isolation, pushing through the unknown, and reconciling one’s past.

  • The First Americans is a full-color series about a Paleo-Indian and his wolf crossing the Bering Strait in pursuit of a mammoth herd. The hunter’s instincts are put to the test as he and his tribe fight to survive.

Previews and full versions of the comics can be found at in digital and print. Fans can also follow the latest Critical Entertainment updates on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
